So wow, some week, huh?
Interestingly, there's both a whole lot of noise and a notable quietness as well.
I believe the quiet element is the global consideration of where we are, and where we want to go. It may not be articulated just that way, but I can feel it.
People are considering things differently. And truth be told, there's much to consider--What does it all mean? What will be at the tail end of all this? More questions than answers right now but in my experience, one question always leads to yet another. And another. And yet another.
The monsoon of questions can lead us into fearful places, so I wanted to offer just a few resources and ideas that will help navigate this time just a little bit better and gain some new insights as well.
1-Visit https://biomimicry.org/30days/ for a very cool nature-based journaling adventure leading up to Earth Day 2020. Not sure what biomimicry is? Check out https://www.youtube.co/watch?v=FBUpnG1G4yQ to learn more.
2-It's totally normal to feel anxious right now and there are many resources to help you work it through. EFT Tapping is a focused and effective alternative therapy to try out if you haven't already. This method has been around for a very long time and has solid research to back up its effectiveness. You can read about it here and try this 5-minute anxiety reducer.
3-I've mentioned him before but want to highlight him again. Guru Singh has one of the most interesting podcasts I've ever come across. He also offers inexpensive online classes on his site. If you're looking for something out of the ordinary yet somehow very uplifting and positive, check out his classes and podcasts.
4-You can enroll for free to learn about "The Science of Well Being" on Coursera.org offered by Yale University. I've had several people--some of which are clients--mention this to me so I thought I'd pass along to you.
Check these out and put your brain to work on things you can do, rather than things you cannot do.
I realize a lot of people are feeling unsteady these days, so I'd like to offer anyone I'm not currently working with a "Pay what you can" coaching session. No long-term commitments, no strings attached. Maybe you just need an hour to sift through some of what you're feeling right now.
I can help with that.
Email me to set up a time. And when I say "pay what you can," I mean exactly that. You'll know what works. Trust yourself.
